Hey GMC!

I was wondering how to properly do the "SRV rake technique"
Like in Jacob Light's newest lesson: https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/BluesTheTexasHybrid/

It looks like he's palm muting the strings he rakes but I find it extremely difficult to palm mute them and have only the proper note ring out. Any advice or tips?

Thanks!!

Yes, using only the right hand palm will not be enough. Please see the image below, the muting of the G string is crucial:

Does it make sense?

I'm kind of starting to get it when the note's on the B string. The other strings are more difficult for some reason, but I'm working on it!

Ok that's the way it should be. Most important is that you grasp the muting concept.

I , for one, am sick and tired of this anti left handed talk. It should say"mute the g-string with the fretting hand"
